    I had this same issue on two Microsoft surface 3 tablets, one was a replacement, both brand new and came with Windows10. They both would sleep after one minute regardless of the setting. Attempts mentioned here did not rectify the problem, only after a call to a Microsoft tech and allowing him remote access fix the problem.

    i had this problem on a lenovo e550 purchased with windows 10 installed. I corrected it with the fix mentioned in another thread on this forum at monitor turns off after 2 minutes of inactivity - page 3 - windows 10 forums
    issue seems to mainly be with laptops using external keyboard and mouse, and waking from the external device.
    I did the fix just a few hours ago, but it seems to have worked for me and a number of others.

    Finally found the solution,just in time too because I swear I was about to go insane.

    Right click on desktop > Power and sleep > Additional power settings > Choose when to turn off the display > Change advanced power settings > Restore plan defaults

    I don't know why but this completely got rid of the issue and I was then able to make the settings whatever I wanted.

    Hope this helps!
    This totally helped. Thank you so much. I had indeed customized the power settings (in Win 7).. Changed the settings back to "default" and no more problem on this issue with Win 10. It wouldn't surprise me if other quirks in 10 might be related to an assumption of default settings in the prior OS. Worth keeping in mind anyway.

    Thanks for this. It was driving me nuts too. I had my own custom power plan and I guess it got corrupted when I upgraded from W8.1 or was incompatible with W10. Anyway, I deleted that plan and reverted to using one of the default ones on default settings as you recommended and it works now. Thanks so much!

    This didnt work for me. It may have temporarily worked, but not permanently. Screen still turning off way before it should. Maddening. Tried all the troubleshooting, scannow and DISM.exe stuff. Nothin worked. And this didnt work either.

    Are you using a theme that perhaps has the screen saver setting on? I had that happen to me once, I changed from a theme with no screen saver to one that turned the screen saver on that I hadn't noticed and I tried all kinds of fixes until I checked and found out that the screen saver setting was on and set to turn off after one minute.

    I have screen saver off. when i ran the trouble shooter, it always says to disable screen saver. that is recommended for some reason. i dont use screen saver anymore. It wasnt reliable anyway. always issues with windows 10..drives me nuts. So i screen saver is set to none. I did troubleshooter, DISM.exe and scannow stuff and none of that helped. Display still shuts off after 1 minute of inactivity. So annoying.

    What do you mean 'using a theme"?
    My screen saver is set to 3 minutes right now. Works sometimes and other times it doesnt. Unreliable.
    None of the troubleshooting works. Scannow didnt help. Reverting to default power settings didnt work. It is just unreliable. Turns off sometimes after a couple minutes of inactivity. The screen saver on 2 or 3 min seems to work 75% of the time so i use that. It even turns off the monitor after 5minutes sometimes like it should. Problem is that it never keeps working properly. i just lowered my expectations and live with it.
